DIY greeting cards
One way of thinking what business best suits you, is to think of the areas where you excel best. If you've got creative skills (in calligraphy and photography), then you can start making profit out of it. In this case, you may need high quality papers and inks, art materials such as washi tapes, stamps, and other decorative things for a startup. Use your calligraphy skills to write quotes or poems or even use your own words in relation to Valentine's Day and add photos for a personalized touch. You can start with online operations by posting your artworks through social media accounts. You may also ask help from friends to help you market your products. Referrals are a big help in gathering potential clients.
DIY photo frames
Captured special moments are best treasured in photo frames. This Valentine's day, you can create personalized photo frames that will suit every personality. You can paint it with either vibrant or natural-toned colors, embellish with quirky décor, use vintage items such as mason jars, or even use recycled things like old ornate mirrors. Let your creativity run wild and be passionate about it. If it's a success, then you might want to consider pursuing it even after this season.
